Rob Lowe is making a reality TV show where he investigates UFOs with his sons

The Lowe road: (l-r) Matthew Edward Lowe, Rob Lowe, his wife Sheryl Berkoff and John Owen Lowe

Rob Lowe, star of The West Wing and Parks and Recreation, whose teenage mullets lit up the 1980s, is turning paranormal investigator this year, presenting a new reality show called The Lowe Files.

Lowe, whose main tragedy is that he always plays characters who turn out to be slightly better as people than he is in real life, will be joined on the show by his two small sons Matthew Edward, 23, and John Owen, 25. They’ll be following up the kinds of “creepy and bizarre” stories you usually see covered on weird satellite channels at 2am, in a grandiose attempt at father-son bonding.

“Since I was a kid I’ve loved unexplained legends, strange phenomena and the scary, supernatural stories told around campfires,” said Lowe. “When I became a father, I shared those tales with my two sons. We bonded over Bigfoot, UFOs, and every creepy and bizarre story we could find, passionately debating if they were real – or not. And we swore that someday the three of us would go on our own adventure to find out. That day has come.”

According to Deadline

“In each episode, the Lowe boys will seek out a mysterious story or spooky legend and immerse themselves in the exploration and debate of the experience. While fun in spirit, the Lowes are able to conduct deliberate and scientific investigations on a highly sophisticated level by meeting with top experts, using high-tech monitoring equipment and taking in-depth training courses. Their many missions include exploring an alien base located 2,000 feet underwater off the coast of Malibu; working with a renowned shaman at Preston Castle, an abandoned boys reformatory, in hopes of connecting with spirits; and training with a top-secret government operative in methods of remote viewing, a challenge to identify images from great distances.”

The show will be broadcast in the US by A&E Network, which has picked it up for nine episodes to be shown in the summer. There’s no word yet as to whether it’ll appear over here.
